H.1.2. Mimicking the <spacer> Tag
Because only Netscape versions 4 and earlier support the <spacer> tag,

property for identical results.
You might also emulate the <spacer> tag with the <img> tag and a spe-
cial, small image. This way, you can achieve <spacer> -like effects even
with browsers that don't support CSS. For an image to emulate <spacer> ,
you'll need a GIF that is completely transparent. Because no part of the
image is ever seen, you can make it as small as you want; we recom-
mend a 1 x 1-pixel GIF image. In the following examples, our tiny 1 x
1-pixel transparent image is named small.gif .

<spacer type=horizontal size= n >
use this <img> tag:
